Searchable Attachments

Facility to search in attachment files and get the associated articles as search results.



As a Knowledge Manager, you might want to share some files along with your articles that provide detailed information or a case study. These attachments are not just displayed with articles in front-end, but can also be made searchable by enabling the "Search Attached Files? setting. Some documents can be searched without any advanced tools, while others need to be indexed by using PHP modules or installed plugins.

Search attachments feature reduce the re-work of typing the attachment contents in articles, you can just upload a file and get it indexed on the fly. The attached documents become searchable like any other piece of data in your knowledge base. When a user search for a term, the search engine also looks for the keyword in indexed attachments. If the search term matches an attachment, the attachment title with link to the corresponding knowledge base article is also provided.
